but resolving to stay strong, sandy hook telling the world "our hearts are broken, our spirits are strong." and finally, you can see the image of the church behind me, just one of the many churches in this community. it's opened its door, allowing people to come in, there's a not a service taking place, they simply said, come pray, come ask questions, one of the main questions they're grappling with, after a tragedy of this scope, of this nature, is how does a community then celebrate christmas? as you drive through this community, they're everywhere, the signs, hug a teacher, love will get us through, this bench full of roses. the small church on main street, a line of neighbors inside the front doors talking with the pastor. but what we also noticed today were the minivans, the station wagons, carrying home christmas trees, families determined to keep this tragedy from stealing the holiday, too. more than 40 years you have been selling christmas trees here. >> yes.
